A rocket is clearly a rocket.  Would be worse if it had balls on it. :)

The new new ones?  No.

 

The Dark side and Grey side of the moon yes.  Pretty nice stuff.  Not sure I'd pay the full entry fee there for one but they felt better on the wrist than I thought they would.  That said, they're thick!

I meant the Dark and Grey Moons - I tried a Grey on the other day and it seems to be about as thick as a Seamaster chrono. It looks pretty sharp and feels good on the wrist - slid under my shirt without problem.
I wonder if the prices will hold up better than the other styles?

They've definitely been 'hard to get' outside of boutiques (and even there, hit or miss).  Not sure about the pre-owned prices, haven't researched it.

 

Very cool watch imo.

There's a certain thickness beyond which I just can't wear a watch. I just can't grasp some people's love of the PO, for example. The thing wears like a brick. Omega's co-axial escapement is a thing of beauty, but tack on any complications and it becomes quite a beast.

I can see that.  I've got a PO8500.  Works well as part of a herd.  Sometimes I like having a big clunky diver, but if I only had one or two watches I might feel differently about it.  And the 9300 chronos... jeez even thicker.

Lighter than a brick - it is ceramic. smile.gif

I'm a fan of the Dark Side. (Not an owner, but a fan).

Here's what it looked like on my wrist:





Wears "small" for its actual dimensions, in my opinion....and yes, definitely lighter than it appears.

This pic was taken at the Omega boutique in H-town (Galleria) on a tyre-kicking session.

Retail $$$ is still high, USD 12K+ if I recall? ....so, you're looking at Daytona-type money, for whatever that's worth.

At the end of the day, the only Omegas that really do it for me are the classic hesalite Speedy Pro or the Speedy Pro with sapphire back.  The variations of which side of the moon, Snoopy, and the 46th, 47th, 48th, etc Anniversary special editions don't do anything for me.

Great watch.  I love my RO !!!  Was that photo taken at Shreves, in Boston?  I was there a few weeks ago, they have some nice merchandise.

What do you think of the basic co-axial, two sub-dial Speedy? It is an entirely different watch, though the design elements are clearly based on the moonwatch.

The day counter kills it for me. Otherwise I would be a fan.

Yeah. They have some great merch indeed.

Agreed about the Speedy. I love mine so much but I just can't seem to feel the same way about any other Omega.
